2005 Honda Pilot passenger heated seat does not work. Fuses are ok.


If fuse #3 20amp in the passanger under-dash box is good.
Check and see if the orange light for the high and low setting come on when you switch between high and low.
if light doesn't come on, the switch itself might be bad.
if light turn on for both setting then, it's a high chance it's the heat pads located under the seat cover need to be replace.

2005 hyundai tucson v6 passenger side heated seat will not warm up the light comes on. driver side is ok could it be the switch even if the light comes on


Possibly.... the only way I know to diagnosis this issue is with an amp meter in the circuit that heats the seats. Compare LH & RH seat heating current draw. If you find the pass seat is NOT drawing the same amount of current, further troublshooting is required. There are TWO heating elements installed in the seats -- seat bottom & seat back, and they are connected in 'SERIES'... so if either element goes/is 'OPEN', then it's component replacement time. There is a thermostat in the heating elements -- it regulates the seat temperature. One must isolate the two elements & check each one individually (seat bottom - checking resistance... and seat back - checking resistance). whichever one (or possibly both) are 'OPEN'. If you find resistance is normal (3 to 5 ohms), then the problem/cause may be in the switch (or its contacts). Using a test light (12 volt bulb), check for power (battery voltage) at the heating element connector to ground (chassis). If the bulb lights up, you know you have power at the switch and is sending it to the heating elements.

Power to the heating element has to be verified. Are you familiar with a test light? If power is present then heating wires built in to seat are broken. This can be checked with an ohm meter. Good luck!

I also neeed to change the middle light in the heated seats switch for the passenger side switch.I understand there are 3 light bulbs in this switch Offhigh heat and low heat ,my off light is burnt out


I have changed the lamps in a couple of the lock/unlock switch in the doors, the rocker does not come off without breaking,that said on some makes (Honda use more than one) you can unclip the back of the switch and there are 3 liliput bulbs soldered on the small circuit board, somewhere like Radio Shack sell them.

The heat light keeps coming on


Check the overheat sensor switch (usually located in the cylinder head) is not faulty.
Check sensor connections are firm - ensure no possibility of short to ground.

The window on driver side switch doesn't work all the time it gets stuck down. Heated seat comes on all the time sometimes 8 or 10 times in a 5 minute period.


for the power window, check the fuse and relay for same, check the switch by turning on the doom light an then depress the switch, if the light dims then same is working, check the motor by add 12v directly to same. for the heated seats check the switch, its malfuctioning

Heater seats dont work but light comes on.


Ok it is obvious since the light is coming on you are getting power to the switch. It could be a heated seat relay. Im fairly sure jeeps use a relay after the switch that is where I would start. Check and see if the Heated seat relay, and fuse are good
